According to Harper’s Bazaar in their March issue, turns out Lady Gaga professionally didn’t have a great year.
Gaga said, “I became very depressed at the end of 2013. I was exhausted fighting people off. I couldn’t even feel my own heartbeat. I was angry, cynical and had this deep sadness like an anchor dragging everywhere I go. I just didn’t feel like fighting anymore. I didn’t feel like standing up for myself one more time…to one more person who lied to me.”
Along with the New Year came an epiphany on January 1, “I woke up, started crying again, and I looked in the mirror and said, I know you don’t want to fight. I know you think you can’t, but you’ve done this before. I know it hurts, but you won’t survive this depression. I really felt like I was dying…my light completely out. I said to myself, whatever is left is there, even just one light molecule, you will find it and make it multiply. You have to for you. You have to for your music. You have to for your fans and your family.”
Gaga said depression doesn’t take away your talents it just makes them harder to find. Gaga added, “I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that’s left. I’m lucky I found one little glimmer stored away.”
During Gaga’s interview, she admitted to being better with food versus being younger because she does not have an eating disorder anymore.
Gaga said she wants to be remembered as being brave. Gaga said, “the only good intention to make money is to help others. I want to be Oprah. I want to be Melinda Gates. If I ever sell products other than my talents, then it will be to give more to others.”
